Discussion: Databases and Businesses

Databases are used in all types of professional environments and help us make business decisions. For example, a database might help a business keep information about customers. This can help inform decisions.

Create one initial post and follow up with at least two response posts.

For your initial post, address the following:

  • How do you think a database can help you solve business problems?
  • What types of businesses might use a database? For what?

Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts. When choosing posts to respond to, consider which of your peers’ posts you relate to the most. Address the following when responding:

  • What is the value of having a database versus not having one? When would you want one (or not want one)?

Your responses should show that you’ve thought about what your peers’ initial posts stated. Your responses should continue the conversation, offer new ideas, and ask questions if something doesn’t make sense, if necessary.

Remember, this assignment is graded on the quality of your initial post and at least two response posts to your classmates. To complete this assignment, review the Discussion Rubric.
